Clinton friendly television network NBC made a big splash in the realm electoral politics when an 11-year-old tape of Donald Trump engaging in sexual banter and using the word “pussy” was released last week. The entire establishment media as well as Trump’s political foes went after the tape like sharks chasing buckets of chum in what was clearly a coordinated campaign in which the players were tipped off well in advance. While NBC was all too happy to drop a bunker buster on Trump, there is a different set of standards when it comes to information that could be damaging to the Clinton crime family. Like a long-suppressed portion of an interview with Slick Willie rape victim Juanita Broaddrick.
According to the Washington Free Beacon “Michael Isikoff: NBC Should Release Full Juanita Broaddrick Interview”:
The reporter that first learned about Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky said on Thursday that NBC is sitting on the full tape of its initial interview with Bill Clinton rape accuser Juanita Broaddrick and should release it before the election.
Michael Isikoff, who was a leading reporter during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, said in a Thursday discussion that NBC should release a 17-year-old tape of an interview that it conducted with Broaddrick. Broaddrick has long claimed that the interview that NBC aired edited out her claim that Hillary Clinton was involved in quashing Broaddrick’s rape claims.
“NBC has the full tape of the original Lisa Myers interview,” Isikoff said during an online discussion on Sidewire.com. “NBC ought to check its archive and run the full interview. (AS long as they’re now culling their archives!)”
Isikoff worked as a national correspondent for NBC from 2010 to 2014. He says that NBC reporter Lisa Myers has confirmed Broaddrick’s claim that NBC edited out references that could have been damaging to Hillary Clinton.
“Folks have made much of the fact that her claim about the conversation she had with Hillary wasn’t in the interview that run,” Isikoff said. “Broaddrick said it got cut out; Lisa Myers has since agreed Broaddrick said this then—and NBC chose to cut it out.”
NBC has never released an unedited version of its interview with Broaddrick.
There is a damned good reason for NBC to keep that incriminating tape locked in it’s vaults and that is that it would spoil the party for the anti-Trump lynch mobs and their daily introduction of alleged sexual assault victims from Trump’s past, women who were so gravely offended and violated that they have waited years if not decades to make their stories public and weeks before an election too.
The descent into attempting to influence a national election at this level is truly unprecedented for the mainstream American media with their onslaught of race-baiting and smut-peddling to take down Trump. It’s hard to see how any of the big media organizations are going to emerge from any of this unscathed. When even a longtime establishment shill like Michael Isikoff is calling for some fairness it is truly a sign that the media has gone a bridge too far.
